A black man arrested in Memphis earlier this week for his alleged involvement in a shootout outside of a South Nashville Taco Bell has been moved to a Davidson County jail. Courtney Davis, who was arrested Tuesday by Memphis police, was booked into the Metro jail Wednesday afternoon on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Black men shooting into traffic and BLM is silent
An arrest warrant alleges Davis was involved in a shootout with a group of people on the afternoon of Jan. 19 in a Taco Bell parking lot along Murfreesboro Pike near Millwood Drive. “Over 90 rounds were fired” during that confrontation, the paperwork states.
Metro police said a group of black men got out of a sedan and walked into the parking lot, where they started shooting at Davis, as he sat in a car. When the group ran from the scene, Davis got out of his vehicle and started firing at them, according to investigators.
During the shootout, Metro police said two people nearby were wounded by gunfire. One victim was pumping gas at the market and was shot in the shoulder. The other victim was traveling down Murfreesboro Road when a bullet grazed his head, leaving him with non-critical injures. Investigators found a rifle and believe multiple handguns were used in the shootout based on shell casings found at the scene.
The warrant states Davis was firing into oncoming traffic and “showed no concern for the safety of others,” as several innocent bystanders were caught in the line of fire. A pick-up truck with three people inside was struck by at least two bullets and one of the people inside was injured, police said. Davis is jailed in Nashville on a $30,000 bond.
Democrats warning of “White supremacy threat” are ignoring the facts
These days, discussing the facts will get you labeled as a racist. But here’s some cold hard truth. There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by Whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.
In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a nonblack to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.
In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.
In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.
If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent. In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.
